Steve Forbert — January 23-30, 1978 lyrics

(try capoing up 3)
G D Amg D
Plane comes down on the old runway, home again for a week I'll stay
G D Amg D
Hanging out like I used to do, hope to find some old friends I knew
Gdam G D
Hear the news in the honky tonk, who got married, yes, and who split up G
Dam G D
Drinking beer while the jukebox plays, brand new songs for brand new days
Cgdam
Quiet nights and empty streets, sleepy town, humble home
Cgd
Same old waltz in the wind, by the railroad track
Gdamgd
Riding out to a country bridge, moonlight shining across the ridge
Gdam G
Frozen trees neath a billion stars, 7 friends jammed in Robby's car
C gd Am
High as kites and wild and gone, drunk as well and laughing loud
C gd
Back at home I say good night (Good night) and I close the door
G damg
Sunday morning the church bell rings, the organ plays and the choir
Dgdam
Sings. Where am I while the preacher speaks? Dreaming dreams neath
Gd
My sheets asleep
Cg damc
Waking up and trying to think, what went down, what'd we do? I rub
Gd
My eyes and I shake my head and feel the sun
Gd Amg
Plane takes off on the old runway, snow fell light on the ground
D G D Am G
Today Lost an hour that I gained before, headed back to my New York
D G D Am D
Door. Fare thee well, adios, adieu and best of luck to all of you I
G D Am
Ain't no saint and I don't pretend to be, but I hope you all found a G
D
Friend in me
Cg D Am
City lights blink and shine, down below, let it change
Cgd
It's often said that life is strange, oh yes, but compared to what?

(yeah) G D Am
